Best fried chicken

The best fried chicken we've had. Great fries too. We liked the family style option and had good service.

Looking for a neat place that serves great down-home food? You have to try Champy's. Their motto is "Forties and Fowl." And that is what they do: serve forty ounce beers and the best chicken you will find anywhere. We had chicken livers and fried wings - YUM!!! The servers all work together to make sure everyone is taken care... More

I love chicken livers and I try them any place I can find them. Champy's was no exception and I was not disappointed. They were crispy and covered in a delicious coating that gave them some crunch and zip. The restaurant is a kaleidoscope for the senses and a fun place for dinner.

We had an excellent lunch. The fried chicken was wonderful and extremely filling, especially if you have 3 piece chicken portion, with a side of fries. The service staff were very professional and was willing to adjust the menu to our request. Many thanks to all at Champy's

Love visiting Champys when we visit our sons at McCallie...great local eatery with tons of atmosphere! Chicken is mouth-watering and some great sides...but no biscuits? Somehow they missed this...and in the south? Really?

Absolutely the BEST fried chicken in Chattanooga! The french fries are great as is the catfish plate. Make sure you try the special Champy's sauce!

Had the fried chicken and tamales. Both were very tasty, the beer was cold and service was very friendly. We went there for good food, cold beer and to watch a game on TV, the delivered!

As a Southern boy, I have eaten a lot of fried chicken. So I have a lot to base it on when I say this, this was the best fried chicken I have ever had. If you're a fried chicken fan, this is your place!

The crunch was great but lacked salt and seasoning I could taste the grease it was cooked in. I really didn't like the Cole slaw it tasted like it had raw collards in it . The beans were really good . I believe it's more for the atmosphere it was cool but not my top 5 best fried chicken but... More
